Santa Barbara Car Rentals

But unless you want to live and die by the bus schedule or hope the ride shares are fast and frequent, your best bet is having your own set of wheels. You can score a cheap Santa Barbara rental car through Hotwire and still have plenty leftover cash to cut across town to that restaurant your friend won’t stop talking about. Better yet, ditch the trendy restaurant and cruise around to find a hidden hot spot that isn’t on everyone’s social feed…at least not yet.
